About the adventure

Welcome to the Lost Mine of Phandelver. This is an introductory module to DnD, but it can be interesting for experienced players as well. The setting is in the Forgotten Realms and you just wanted to do a simple job. Escort a caravan, get paid, and then live a happy life. That was the plan, but nothing goes as expected. What happens? That is completely up to you. There are many different options for you to chose from, and the adventure is completely customizable for each party. So come, play, and have fun with your own unique story!

Additional Details

How to prepare

Have a mic, a foundry account (free) and do your best to remember important rules when they are told. Aside from this, just come and be ready to play in a fun one shot!

What I provide

The module for Mine of Phandelver will provide maps, tokens, and your character can have their own special token as well.

Gameplay details

We will be using the Mine of Phandelver module. The maps are done by professionals, so it will look pretty. All you need is a desire to play since there are pre-made characters, specifically 4 per class. You will be as stated starting out on a simple job that doesn't end as any sane person would wish. Beyond this, it is up to you. There is a lot of lore in the world to discover and many monsters to slay. If you want to somehow befriend creatures, you might pull it off or end up fighting everyone and everything. The choice is as it should always be, up to you.
